LONDON – Welcome to Miami! Irish flag carrier Aer Lingus is gearing up to restart direct flights to Miami, Florida as of Friday, 21 October. It will be the first time the airline has operated into the US destination in two and a half years.
The route will operate three times weekly, as part of the airline’s winter schedule. To celebrate the Miami restart, Aer Lingus has also launched special fares on flights to North America – offering flights to Miami from €159, or flights to any other North American destination from €169.
The transatlantic gateway
Renowned for its beautiful beaches, art deco architecture and Cuban-inspired cuisine, Miami is just a flight away with Aer Lingus.
Whether it’s soaking up on the sun on South Beach, discovering Miami’s vibrant Cuban culture in Little Havana or admiring the colourful architecture lining the iconic Ocean Drive, it’s an ideal winter destination with guaranteed sunshine.
Reinforcing Dublin as the natural European transatlantic gateway, Aer Lingus will offer connections from key UK and European airports to Miami via Dublin where travellers will experience the benefits of pre-clearing US immigration ahead of their long-haul flight.
On Aer Lingus’ inaugural service to Miami, operating Friday 21 October, almost 1 in 4 passengers will have begun their journey outside of Ireland.

Aer Lingus statement
“Miami Florida is an ideal destination for every type of traveller whether it be the cruising fanatics, sun seekers, party goers or the keen shoppers, there are endless possibilities.”
“As the only carrier to operate direct flights to Miami from Ireland, we can also cater to the UK and European market given the seamless connections we offer travellers transiting via Dublin.”
“Restarting our Miami service is a further proof point of our ambition to continue to grow our North American network.” says Susanne Carberry, Aer Lingus Chief Customer Officer.
Recent US route resumptions
The recommencement of the Aer Lingus Dublin-Miami service closely follows the recent announcement of Cleveland, Ohio and the return of Hartford, Connecticut, both of which will operate as part of the airline’s summer 2023 programme.
The airline currently operates 16 direct routes between Ireland and North America including New York, Chicago, Boston, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Orlando, Washington, Seattle, and Philadelphia.
The airline is the only carrier presently offering direct flights between Ireland and Miami.
As always, customers flying to North America with Aer Lingus will enjoy complimentary meals and drinks, endless hours of in-flight entertainment, and US Customs and Border pre-clearance at Dublin and Shannon airports.
